DESIGNATED DEPOSITORY LIBRARIES 



AUTHORIZATION 

The law now in force provides for a class of libraries in the United 
States in which certain Government publications are deposited for the 
use of the public. These libraries are known in the office of the Super- 
intendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, where the 
distribution is made, as designated depository libraries. Title 44 of 
the United States Code which is the authority for the operation of 
the depository program was codified and enacted during the 90th 
Congress. Sections of title 44 and excerpts from the Statutes at Large 
affecting the program will be found in the appendix at the end of this 
pamphlet. In the revised title 44, simplified language has been sub- 
stituted for awkward and obsolete terms, and superseded and obsolete 
statutes were eliminated. The statutes are intended to remain sub- 
stantively unchanged even though changes in terminology and stlye 
have been made by the codification of title 44. 

NUMBER 

Under the present provisions of title 44 of the United States Code, 
the depository list comprises the following described libraries : 

Highest State Appellate Court libraries 47 

State libraries 50 

2 libraries for each congressional district to be designated by the Repre- 
sentative from that district (or at large in the case of undistricted States) _ 870 

2 libraries to be designated in any part of the State by each Senator 200 

2 libraries to be designated by the Resident Commissioner from Puerto 

Rico 2 

2 libraries to be designated by the Mayor of the District of Columbia 2 

1 library to be designated by the Governor of Guam 1 

1 library to be designated by the Governor of American Samoa 1 

2 libraries to be designated by the Governor of the Virgin Islands (1 on the 
island of St. Thomas and 1 on the island of St. Croix) 2 

The libraries of the land-grant colleges ' 71 

"The libraries of the executive departments in Washington 12 

Libraries of independent agencies and of major bureaus and divisions of 

departments and agencies ^ 125 

The libraries of the U.S. Air Force, Coast Guard, Merchant Marine, Mili- 

tar}^, and Naval Academies 5 

Law School Libraries 194 

1 An estimated number. 

In addition, the following libraries were designated by special 
legislation : 

Amercan Anitiquarian Society Library, Worcester, Mass 1 

The Public Library of the District of Columbia 1 

(1) 



The estimated theoretical total number of authorized depository 
libraries is, therefore, 1,390. However, of the 1,227 currently on the 
list, some are not included in this total since in several instances there 
are three or more depository libraries in the same congressional 
district, all designated by Representatives, due to redistricting after 
each decennial census. 

If a depository designated by a Representative already exists 
within a congressional district or one in Puerto Rico designated by 
the Resident Commissioner, before an additional one may be desig- 
nated by such a desi^ator, a certified statement or justification of 
the need for an additional depositor}^ must be furnished by the head 
of the library to be designated. This justification must also be signed 
by the head of every existing depository library within the congres- 
sional district or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, or by the head 
of the library authority of the State or Commonwealth. A similar 
justification is required in the case of a senatorial designation when 
the Senator or his predecessor has already designated an existing 
depository. 

DISCONTINUANCE 

Once a library has been designated a depository it cannot be 
removed from the list and another library designated in its place 
upon the election of a new Member of Congress. It remains a depos- 
itory until it ceases to exist or vacates the privilege at its own request 
(sec. 5, Sundry Civil Act, approved June 23, 1913, 38 Stat. 75, as 
amended). It can, however, be removed by the Superintendent of 
Documents for failure to abide by the laws governing the depository 
program (44 U.S.C 1910, Oct. 22, 1968, 82 Stat. 1286). 

REGIONAL DEPOSITORIES 

The 1962 amendments to the law provided for the designation of 
not more than two libraries in each State and the Commonwealth of 
Puerto Rico to be regional depositories. Such designations may be 
made by the Senators from the States and the Resident Commissioner 
in the case of Puerto Rico. 

Libraries designated to be regional depositories must already be 
designated depositories. 

Designation as a regional depository requires prior approval of the 
head of the library authority of the State or the Commonwealth of 
Puerto Rico. 

In addition to fulfilling the requirements for regular depositories, 
they must receive and retain at least one copy of all Government 
publications made available to depositories, either in printed or 
microcopy form (except those authorized to be discarded by the 
Superintendent of Documents). 

Within the region they serve, the regional depositories must provide 
interlibrary loan, reference service, and assistance for regular deposi- 
tory libraries in the disposal of unwanted Government publications 
as provided by law. They have the authority to permit regular de- 
pository libraries within the areas served by them to dispose of Gov- 
ernment publications which they have retained for at least 5 years 
after first offering them to other depository libraries within their 
area, then to other libraries, and then if not wanted to discard. 



< 



BOOKS FURNISHED 

Depository libraries are permitted to receive one copy of all publi- 
cations of the U.S. Government, except those determined by their 
issuing components to be required for official use onl}^ or those required 
for strictly administrative or operational purposes which have no 
public interest or educational value, and publications classified for 
reasons of national security. In addition to the exceptions noted, the 
so-called cooperative publications, which must necessarily be sold in 
order to be self-sustaining, are also excluded. These are primarily 
certain publications of the Library of Congress and of the National 
Technical Information Service. 

SELECTIVE PLAN 

In view of the repeated requests from librarians of the designated 
depository libraries to be granted the privilege of selecting those 
public documents of the United States most suitable for their libraries, 
and which they would prefer to receive, instead of being compelled as 
formerly to receive the whole output of the Government Printing 
Oflice, all libraries are now on a selective basis. A classified list of the 
series and groups of Government publications available for selection 
has been furnished to all depositories for their use in making selections. 
This list which is revised from time to time is furnished in card form 
with one card for each series or group of publications giving the dis- 
tribution item number, the issuing agency, the series or group title, 
and brief descriptions where needed. 

As new series are begun by existing Government agencies, or new 
agencies are established, additional cards for the list are furnished to 
depositories for them to select the new material if desired. Cards are 
furnished in duplicate and selections are made by return to the 
Superintendent of Documents of one card for each series or group 
selected, properly marked with the depository's assigned library 
number. (This library number is assigned by the Superintendent of 
Documents for administrative purposes in control of selections and 
distribution of publications.) 

The annual appropriation act for the Government Printing Office, 
beginning with July 1, 1922, provides that no part of the sum appro- 
priated shall be used to supply the depository libraries with any 
publications not requested by such libraries, and that request must 
be made in advance of printing. There is therefore no retroactive 
distribution of depository publications as only sufficient copies are 
printed to provide distribution to those libraries which have selected 
the series or group in which a particular publication falls, prior to time 
of printing. 

DISPOSAL OF BOOKS 

The law requires that the Government publications, when for- 
w^arded to a depository, shall be made available for the free use of the 
general public, and must be retained permanently by all depository 
libraries not served by a regional depository, and by regional deposi- 
tories themselves in either printed or microcopy form. The exceptions 
allowed by the present law are superseded publications and those 



issued later in bound form, which ma}^ be discarded as authorized 
by the Superintendent of Documents. 

Depository libraries which are served by regional depositories may 
dispose of publications which they have retained for at least 5 years 
with the permission of and in accordance with instructions from the 
regional depository which serves their area. 

Depository libraries within executive departments and independent 
agencies of the Federal Government are authorized to dispose of 
unwanted Government publications after first offering them to the 
Library of Congress and the National Archives. 

Depository libraries within the State Appellate Courts may dispose 
of unwanted Government publfcations after offering them to the 
designated Regional Depository Library serving the State. If the 
State is not served by a designated Regional Depository, publications 
should be offered to the State Librarian. 

HISTORY OF EARLY LEGISLATION 

Before the establishment of designated depositories, or any system- 
atic methods for the distribution of public documents, special acts 
were passed at various times providing for the printing of a sufficient 
number of copies of the public journals of the Senate and House of 
Representatives for distribution to the executives of the several States 
and each branch of the State and territorial legislatures. Provision 
was also made at times for supplying these journals, the acts, and 
sometimes the documents and reports, to each university and college 
incorporated in each State, as well as to the incorporated historical 
societies throughout the country. 

During the 13th Congress, second session, December 27, 1813, a 
resolution was adopted embodying these provisions which had hereto- 
fore been covered by special legislation, and not only directing distribu- 
tion for a Congress, but "for every future Congress." Two hundred 
copies in addition to the usual number was the limit named for docu- 
ments, and this, of course, was more than sufficient for the needs at 
that early day. 

By joint resolutions approved July 20, 1840, and April 30, 1844, the 
number of copies of journals and documents printed was increased to 
300. 

A resolution of January 28, 1857, as amended by resolution of 
March 20, 1858, was the real basis of the institution of depositories. 
By these provisions the journals and documents which up to that 
time, were deposited in the Library of Congress for distribution by 
the Librarian, and 250 copies of those delivered to the Department 
of State for distribution by that De})artment to colleges and other 
literary institutions, were transferred to the jurisdiction of the Secre- 
tary of the Interior ''for distribution to such colleges, public libraries, 
atheneums, literary and scientific institutions, and boards of trade or 
public associations as may be designated to him by the Representative 
in Congress from each congressional district and by the Delegate from 
each Territory in the United States." 

The following February, at the second session, 35th Congress 
(Feb. 5, 1859), an act was passed providing for ''keeping and distribut- 



5 

ing all public documents" (11 Stat. 379). This act charged the Secre- 
tary of the Interior with ''receiving, arranging, safekeeping, and 
distribution" of public documents ''of every nature," already or 
hereafter directed by law to be printed or purchased for the use of 
the Government, "except such as are for the special use of Congress 
or the executive departments." It also empowered him to remove 
from the Congressional Library and other places all accumulations 
of books, journals, etc., and appropriated $22,000 for he purpose. 
He was directed by the act to keep accurate statistics of the receipt 
and distribution of all books. 

Section 5 of this act further amended the resolution of January 28, 
1857, by providing for the designation of a library by each of the 
Senators, and directing that the distribution should be made first to 
such States as had not yet been covered by distribution, and that in 
the future the distribution should be kept equal in each congressional 
district and territory. 

All books, maps, charts, etc., heretofore deposited in the Depart- 
ment of State were also turned over to the Secretary of the Interior. 

The act of February 5, 1859, was in force without amendment until 
March 2, 1861, at the 36th Congress, second session, when a long act 
to amend was passed (12 Stat. 244), the most important feature of 
which as affecting general distribution w^as contained in the first sec- 
tion, w^hich gave the Secretary of the Interior the right to designate 
libraries to receive publications of which the edition was not sufficient 
to supply the regular depositories to be named by the Senators and 
Representatives. His power of selection was limited, however, by a 
proviso in section 2 which stated that in the future the public docu- 
ments to be distributed by the Secretary of the Interior should be 
sent to the institutions already designated, unless he should be satis- 
fied that any such institution was no longer a suitable depository for 
the same. This act also contained a clause repealing all acts or parts 
of acts inconsistent with its provisions. 

Upon the basis of these acts the Revised Statutes were compiled, 
and chapter 7, sections 497 to 511, pages 82 to 85, contain all opera- 
tive provisions reenacted at that time and superseding all former 
enactments. 

No legislation can be found prior to that contained in the General 
Printing Act of January 12, 1895, affecting the State and territorial 
libraries, and it is thought that it became customary to send documents 
regularly to these libraries, under the discretionary powers vested in 
.the Secretary of the Interior, which would account for their appear- 
ance on the depository list many years prior to 1895. 

DESIGNATED DEPOSITORY LIST AS OF APRIL 1978 

Abbreviations used: Rep. des.— Representative designation 
Sen. des.— Senatorial designation 

[Note.— The terms of office of Senators are divided into three classes— Class I, Class II, and Class III . 
Approximately one-third of tht Senators in each class depending on when their term of office expires as 
given in the Table of Senators, sections 800 to 899 of the Senate Manual. The law now in force limits the 
number of depository designations for the Senators of either class in a State to two. 
The date which immediately follows the library designations is the year in which the library became a 

Depository Library, although in some instances the name of the library may have been changed since this 

designation. Where our records do not indicate when a library became a depository, the word "unknown" 

appears instead of the date]

APPENDIX 



LAWS IN FORCE RELATING TO GOVERNMENT DEPOSITORY LIBRARIES 

(Extract From Public Law 90-620) 

90th Congress, H.R. 18612 

October 22, 1968 

To enact title 44, United States Code, "Public Printing and Documents", 
codifying the general and permanent laws relating to public printing and docu- 
ments. 

******* 

Chapter 19— DEPOSITORY LIBRARY PROGRAM 

* * * * * * 4c 

§ 1901. Definition of Goyernment publication 

"Government publication" as used in this chapter, means informational matter 
which is published as an individual document at Government expense, or as 
required by law. 

§ 1902. Availability of Government publications through Superintendent of 
Documents ; lists of publications not ordered from Government Printing 
Office 

Government pubhcations, except those determined by their issuing components 
to be required for official use only or for strictly administrative or operational 
purposes which have no pubUc interest or educational value and publications 
classified for reasons of national security, shall be made available to depository 
libraries through the facilities of the Superintendent of Documents for public 
information. Each component of the Government shall furnish the Superintendent 
of Documents a list of such publications it issued during the previous month, that 
were obtained from sources other than the Government Printing Office. 

§ 1903. Distribution of publications to depositories ; notice to Government com- 
ponents ; cost of printing and binding 

Upon request of the Superintendent of Documents, components of the Govern- 
ment ordering the printing of publications shall either increase or decrease the 
number of copies of publications furnished for distribution to designated depository 
Hbraries and State libraries so that the number of copies delivered to the Superin- 
tendent of Documents is equal to the number of hbraries on the hst. The number 
thus deUvered may not be restricted by any statutory hmitation in force on 
August 9, 1962. Copies of publications furnished the Superintendent of Documents 
for distribution to disignated depository hbraries shall include — 

the journal of the Senate and House of Representatives; 

all pubhcations, not confidential in character, printed upon the requisition 
of a congressional committee ; 

Senate and House public bills and resolutions; and 

reports on private bills, concurrent or simple resolutions ; 
but not so-called cooperative pubhcations which must necessarily be sold in order 
to be self-sustaining. 

The Superintendent of Documents shall currently inform the components of 
the Government ordering printing of pubhcations as to the number of copies of 
their pubhcations required for distribution to depository libraries. The cost of 
printing and binding those publications distributed to depository libraries ob- 
tained elsewhere than from the Government Printing Office, shall be borne by 
components of the Government responsible for their issuance : those requisitioned 
from the Government Printing Office shall be charged to appropriations provided 
the Superintendent of Documents for that purpose. 

(41) 



42 

§ 1904. Classified list of Government publications for selection by depositories 

The Superintendent of Documents shall currently issue a classified list of 
Government publications in suitable form, containing annotations of contents 
and listed by item identification numbers to facilitate the selection of only those 
publications needed by depository libraries. The selected publications shall be 
distributed to depository libraries in accordance with regulations of the Superin- 
tendent of Documents, as long as they fulfill the conditions provided by law. 
§1905. Distribution to depositories; designation of additional libraries; justi- 
fication; authorization for certain designations 
The Government publications selected from lists prepared by the Superin- 
tendent of Documents, and when requested from him, shall be distributed to 
depository libraries specifically designated by law and to libraries designated by 
Senators, Representatives, and the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico, 
by the Commissioner of the District of Columbia, and by the Governors of Guam, 
American Samoa, and the Virgin Islands, respectively. Additional libraries within 
areas served by Representatives or the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico, 
may be designated by them to receive Government publications to the extent 
that the total number of libraries designated by them does not exceed two within 
each area. Not more than two additional libraries within a State may be des- 
ignated by each Senator from the State. Before an additional library within a 
State, congressional district or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico is designated 
as a depository for Government publications, the head of that library shall 
furnish his Senator, Representative, or the Resident Commissioner from Puerto 
Rico, as the case may be, with justification of the necessity for the additional 
designation. The justification, which shall also include a certification as to the 
need for the additional depository library designation, shall be signed by the head 
of every existing depository library within the congressional district or the Com- 
monwealth of Puerto Rico or by the head of the library authority of the State or 
the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, within which the additional depository 
library is to be located. The justification for additional depository library des- 
ignations shall be transmitted to the Superintendent of Documents by the 
Senator, Representative, or the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico, as the 
case may be. The Commissioner of the District of Columbia may designate two 
depository libraries in the District of Columbia, the Governor of Guam and the 
Governor of American Samoa may each designate one depository library in Guam 
and American Samoa, respectively, and the Governor of the Virgin Islands may 
designate one depository library on the island of Saint Thomas and one on the 
island of Saint Croix. 
§ 1906. Land-grant colleges constituted depositories 

Land-grant colleges are constituted depositories to receive Government publi- 
cations subject to the depository laws. 

§1907. Libraries of executive departments, service academies, and independent 
agencies constituted depositories; certifications of need; disposal of 
unwanted publications 
The libraries of the executive departments, of the United States Military 
Academy, of the United States Naval Academy, of the United States Air Force 
Academy, of the United States Coast Guard Academy, and of the United States 
Merchant Marine Academy are designated depositories of Government publica- 
tions. A depository library within each independent agency may be designated-upon 
certification of need by the head of the independent agency to the Superintendent 
of Documents. Additional ' depository libraries within executive departments 
and independent agencies may be designated to receive Government publica- 
tions to the extent that the number so designated does not exceed the number 
of major bureaus or divisions of the departments and independent agencies. 
These designations may be made only after certification by the head of each 
executive department or independent agency to the Superintendent of Documents 
as to the justifiable need for additional depository libraries. Depository libraries 
within executive departments and independent agencies may dispose of unwanted 
Government publications after first offering them to the Library of Congress and 
the Archivist of the United States. 
§ 1908. American Antiquarian Society to receive certain publications 

One copy of the public journals of the Senate and of the House of Representa- 
tives, and of the documents published under the orders of the Senate and House 
of Representatives, respectively, shall be transmitted to the Executive of the 
Commonwealth of Massachusetts for the use and benefit of the American Anti- 
quarian Society of the Commonwealth. 



43 

§1909. Requirements of depository libraries; reports on conditions; investiga- 
tions; termination; replacement 

Only a library able to provide custody and service for depository materials 
and located in an area where it can best serve the public need, and within an 
area not already adequately served by existing depository libraries may be 
designated by Senators, Representatives, the Resident Commissioner from Puerto 
Rico, the Commissioner of the District of Columbia, or the Governors of Guam, 
American Samoa, or the Virgin Islands as a depository of Government publica- 
tions. The designated depository libraries shall report to the Superintendent of 
Documents at least every two years concerning their condition. 

The Superintendent of Documents shall make firsthand investigation of 
conditions for which need is indicated and include the results of investigations 
in his annual report. When he ascertains that the number of books in a depository 
library is below ten thousand, other than Government publications, or it has 
ceased to be maintained so as to be accessible to the public, or that the Govern- 
ment publications which have been furnished the library have not been properly 
maintained, he shall delete the library from the list of depository libraries if the 
library fails to correct the unsatisfactory conditions within six months. The 
Representative or the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico in whose area 
the library is located or the Senator who made the designation, or a successor of 
the Senator, and, in the case of a library in the District of Columbia, the Com- 
missioner of the District of Columbia, and, in the case of a library in Guam, 
American Samoa, or the Virgin Islands, the Governor, shall be notified and shall 
then be authorized to designate another library within the area served by him, 
which shall meet the conditions herein required, but which may not be in excess 
of the number of depository libraries authorized by law within the State, district, 
territory, or the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, as the case may be. 

§1910. Designations of replacement depositories; limitations on numbers; 
conditions 

The designation of a library to replace a depository library, other than a de- 
pository library specifically designated by law, may be made only within the 
limitations on total numbers specified by section 1905 of this title, and only 
when the library to be replaced ceases to exist, or when the library voluntarily 
relinquishes its depository status, or when the Superintendent of Documents 
determines that it no longer fulfills the conditions provided by law for depository 
libraries. 

§1911. Free use of Government publications in depositories; disposal of un- 
wanted publications 

Depository libraries shall make Government publications available for the free 
use of the general public, and may dispose of them after retention for five years 
under section 1912 of this title, if the depository library is served by a regional 
depository library. Depository libraries not served by a regional depository 
hbrary, or that are regional depository libraries themselves, shall retain Govern- 
ment publications permanently in either printed form or in microfacsimile form, 
except superseded publications or those issued later in bound form which may 
be discarded as authorized by the Superintendent of Documents. 

§ 1912. Regional depositories ; designation ; functions ; disposal of publications 

Not more than tw'o depository libraries in each State and the Commonwealth 
of Puerto Rico may be designated as regional depositories, and shall receive 
from the Superintendent of Documents copies of all new and revised Govern- 
ment publications authorized for distribution to depository libraries. Designation 
of regional depository libraries may be made by a Senator or the Resident Com- 
missioner from Puerto Rico within the areas served by them, after approval by 
the head of the library authority of the State or the Commonwealth of Puerto 
Rico, as the case may be, who shall first ascertain from the head of the library 
to be so designated that the library will, in addition to fulfilling the requirements 
for depository libraries, retain at least one copy of all Government publications 
either in printed or microfacsimile form (except those authorized to be discarded 
by the Superintendent of Documents) ; and within the region served will provide 
interlibrary loan, reference service, and assistance for depository libraries in the 
disposal of unwanted Government publications. The agreement to function as a 
regional depository library shall be transmitted to the Superintendent of Docu- 
ments by the Senator or the Resident Commissioner from Puerto Rico when the 
designation is made. 



44 

The libraries designated as regional depositories may permit depository librar- 
ies, within the areas served by them, to dispose of Government pubhcations which 
they have retained for five years after first offering them to other depository 
libraries within their area, then to other libraries. 

§ 1913. Appropriations for supplying depository libraries; restriction 

Appropriations available for the Office of Superintendent of Documents may 
not be used to supply depository hbraries documents, books, or other printed 
matter not requested by them, and their requests shall be subject to approval 
by the Superintendent of Documents. 

§ 1914. Implementation of depository library program by Public Printer 

The Public Printer, with the approval of the Joint Committee on Printing, as 
provided by section 103 of this title, may use any measures he considers necessary 
for the economical and practical implementation of this chapter. 

§ 1915. Highest State appellate court libraries as depository libraries 

Upon the request of the highest appellate court of a state, the Public Printer 
is authorized to designate the library T)f that court as a depository library. The 
provisions of section 1911 of this title shall not apply to any library so designated. 

(Added Pub. L. 92-358, August 10, 1972, 82 Stat. 1283.) 

§ 1916. Designation of libraries of accredited law schools as depository libraries 

Upon the request of any accredited law school, the Public Printer shall designate 
the library of such law school as a depository library. The Public Printer may 
not make such designation unless he determines that the library involved meets 
the requirements of this chapter, other than those requirements of the first 
undesignated paragraph of section 1909 of this title which relate to the location 
of such library. 

For purposes of this section, the term "accredited law school" means any law 
school which is accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency or 
association approved by the Commissioner of Education for such purpose or 
accredited by the highest appellate court of the State in which the law school 
is located. 

Sec. 2. The table of sections for chapter 19 of title 44, United States Code, is 
amended by adding at the end thereof the following new item: 

"1^16. Designation of libraries of accredited law schools as depository libraries."' 
Sec. 3. The amendments made by this Act shall take effect on October 1, 1978' 
(Added Pub L. 95-261, April 17, 1978, 92 Stat. 199).. 

The following sections are also taken from title 44 of the United States Code- 

§701. "Usual number" of documents and reports; distribution of House and 
Senate documents and reports; binding; reports on private bills; 
number of copies printed ; distribution 

******* 
(c) Of the number printed, the Public Printer shall bind a sufficient number of 
copies for distribution as follows: 

Of the House documents and reports, bound — to the Senate library, fifteen 
copies; to the Library of Congress, not to exceed one hundred and fifty copies, 
as provided by section 1718 of this title; to the House of Representatives Hbrary,

§ 719. Classification and numbering of publications ordered printed by Congress; 
designation of publications of departments; printing of committee 
hearings 

Publications ordered printed by Congress, or either House, shall be in four 
series, namely: 

one series of reports made by the committees of the Senate, to be known 
as Senate reports; 

one series of reports made by the committees of the House of Representa- 
tives, to be known as House reports; 

one series of documents other than reports of committees, the orders for 
printing which originate in the Senate, to be known as Senate documents, and 
one series of documents other than committee reports, the orders for print- 
ing which originate in the House of Representatives, to be known as House 
documents. 
The publications in each series shall be consecutively numbered, the numbers in 
each series continuing in unbroken sequence throughout the entire term of a 
Congress, but these provisions do not apply to the documents printed for the 
use of the Senate in executive session. Of the "usual number", the copies which 
are intended for distribution to State libraries and other designated depositories 
of annual or serial publications originating in or prepared by an executive depart- 
ment, bureau, office, commission, or board may not be numbered in the document 
or report series of either House of Congress, but shall be designated by title and 
bound as provided by section 738 of this title; and the departmental edition, if 
any, shall be printed concurrently with the "usual number". Hearings of com- 
mittees may be printed as congressional documents only when specifically ordered 
by Congress or either House. 

§ 738. Binding of publications for distribution to libraries 

The Public Printer shall supply the Superintendent of Documents with sufficient 
copies of publications distributed in unbound form to be bound and distributed 
to the State libraries and other designated depositories for their permanent files. 
Every publication of sufficient size on any one subject shall be bound separately 
and receive the title suggested by the subject of the volume and the others shall 
be distributed in unbound form as soon as printed. The library edition as well as 
all other bound sets of congressional numbered documents and reports shall be 
arranged in volumes and bound in the manner directed by the Joint Committee 
on Printing. 

§ 906. Congressional Record gratuitous copies ; delivery ; subscriptions 

The Public Printer shall furnish the Congressional Record only as follows: 
******* 
to the Superintendent of Documents as many daily and bound copies as may 
be required for distribution to depository libraries.
